Spring Fling Week provided food, fun and entertainment for 
students, faculty and staff. 

Students on the Wesson campus always look forward to the 
crawfish boil on one night of the week. As for the students 
on the Natchez campus, the annual goat kissing will always 
bring about a laugh or two. Simpson County Center students 
enjoy the many activities of the week. Each campus has its 
own theme for the event-packed week. 

Spring Fling is a time to have fun and relax before finals. It is 
also a time for out going sophomores to reminisce about 
their time at Copiah-Lincoln Community College. The 
administration, along with members of the Student 
Government Association, work hard to ensure students have 
an enjoyable time during Spring Fling.

Homecoming was such a wonderful week that 
was filled with numerous activities that all lead 
up to an exciting game. The students, faculty, 
and staff did a superb job in participating in the 
festivities. The students really enjoyed the dance 
and the decorations made by the student 
government. The parade was the highlight of the 
week along with the pep rally. At the rally the 
band, the Colettes, and the cheerleaders all 
preformed to show support for the Wolfpack 
Football Team. This year the Wolves played 
against Pearl River and won 42- 25.

During the months of November and 
December, the Natchez Campus sponsored 
several programs and events to salute 
veterans and soldiers. 

On Nov. 7, the American Flag Retirement 
Ceremony was held in conjunction with local 
veterans and Scouting organizations. More 
than 100 worn flags were burned in 
ceremonial fashion as prescribed by the U.S. 
Flag Code. 

"It was a wonderful ceremony," said Ricky 
Warren, Scoutmaster for Boy Scout Troop 
168, one of the organizations participating. 
"The America Flag was highly respected that 
day, and treated in the proper way. Co-Lin 
deserves credit for sponsoring the program; 
and it was good to see so many young 
people attending and participating." 

On Nov. 11, Co-Lin hosted the Community 
Veterans Day Program in the W. L. Nelson 
Multi-Purpose Room. More than 180 attended 
from around the community and the campus. 

Busby was director of the program; 
representatives of the Junior Reserve Officer 
Training Corps at Natchez High School made 
up the Color Guard; the Pledge of Allegiance 
was led by Sgt. 1st Class Dandridge L. 
Brooks Sr. of the Mississippi Army National 

Speakers included Natchez Mayor Jake 
Middleton and Army Capt. Meckard Deon 
Carter of the Mississippi Army National 
Guard. Co-Lin instructor Linda Davis, led 
students in singing "God Bless 
America." They were Sharla 
Cameron, Amber Smith, Raven 
Wright, Marlisha Brinkley, Takita 
Scott, Regina Murphy (a veteran), 
Tahyna Nations and Marquita 

On Dec. 7, Co-Lin mailed 19 boxes 
containing more than 3,000 items 
and more than 1,000 Christmas 
cards to soldiers from this area 
stationed in Iraq. 

On Dec. 30, Co-Lin delivered eight 
boxes of items and more than 400 
holiday cards to the G. V. "Sonny" 
Montgomery Veterans Medical 
Center in Jackson.

"Being in the military for 36 years, I was feeling 
saddened and delighted because I dedicated my life 
to our country; this program was wonderfully set. " 

- Army veteran Joseph Conrad 

"Honor is what I feel when I am in a room filled with 
our country's veterans. I really enjoyed the program, 
considering I'll serve our country one day, also. "

Take goblins and ghouls, spielers and skeletons, mix in 
meatballs and gumbo, cookies and pie, stir in music and 
laughter and you have the perfect recipe for success. 
Oh, yes, there's that competition, too, for the titles of 
best food and best display. 

That's what happened during the annual Taste of Co-Lin 
recently at Copiah-Lincoln Community College's Natchez 

The event is a fun fund-raiser pitting clubs and 
organizations in competition to create the best food 
items and decorate their food booths. This year's theme 
was Monster Bash, so Halloween costumes, food and 
decorations were in abundance. 

"It was great to see everyone having such a 
wonderful time! Definitely, the best Taste of 
Co-Lin yet!" said Nancy McFarland, academic 
counselor and advisor to Trailblazers, the lead 
sponsoring club. 

Vice President Teresa Busby said, "It is great 
to see clubs on campus support each other 
and the number of clubs who participated this 
year was impressive. The food, as always, was 
exceptional. Our Trailblazers did a nice job 
putting this event together." 

Trailblazers won The Spectacular Silver 
Spatula Award, while the combined N- 
Sights/Film Club entry won the Taste of Co- 
Lin Trophy. More than 100 people stopped by 
to sample the food, view the booths and vote. 
The revenue will be used for promotional 
purposes for the campus. 

"It is a truly amazing event that draws the 
campus clubs and organizations together for a 
few hours of good natured competition," said 
Vonnie White, a Trailblazers advisor and 
Career and Technical Education counselor. 
"Each year the event grows larger and the 
participants raise the bar higher to include 
better food and more elaborate table 
decorations. I look forward to Taste every 
year. It has become the 'can't miss' event on

Plundered by the 
"Pirates of the Colin-bbean" 

The voyage begins with the "Pirates of the Colin-bbean" 
in the swashbuckling voyage across the open seas in 
search of all the ill-gotten booty they can muster. 

Soon, they will be somewhat subdued by Larry and his 
pals of Veggie-Tale fame as the "Pirates That Don't Do 
Anything." As they move across the sea, the drumline will 
then be featured in a rousing rendition of "What Do We 
With a Drunken Sailor." 

Finally, when order is restored, no visit to the Caribbean 
could be complete without a touch of Jimmy Buffet. 

As the pirates come back to reality, they begin to 
ponder their checkered pasts with "A Pirates Looks at 40."

Mytchiko Mckenzie is a freshman student who is 
pursuing an Orientation and Mobility degree. One 
thing you should know about this energetic and self- 
motivated student is she is legally blind. 

She was born four and a half months prematurely and 
only weighed one pound and fourteen ounces, which 
resulted in her retinas not fully developing. This 
condition is called Reteniteus Pigmentesa of 

"I'm one of the few people who is not afraid to 

walk in the dark because I don't need a light. 

I have my cane. " 

- Mytchiko McKenzie 

The South Pike graduate chose Co-Lin to test her 
skills to see if she was independent enough to be 
away from her parents. She has daily challenges like 
finding things and recognizing people. She believes 
that Co-Lin and any other situation is all of what one 
makes of it. She had the chance to participate in the 
2009 Trillium Beauty Pageant and walked gracefully 
and confidently across the stage as contestant 
number eight. 

She is a member of the Co-Lin Blue Wave Show 
Band, the Wesley Drama Team, and the Mississippi 
United Methodist Student College Union Movement. 
Her greatest accomplishments include getting the 
highest ACT score of her graduating class and 
making it through this year's football season in the 
band. She is a very talented young lady who plays 
tenor saxophone, alto saxophone, clarinet, and bass

Underneath ... 

it ALL 

By: Matthew Gaddy 

Co-Lin is truly the place to be. I decided on Co-Lin 
because of the atmosphere, the smaller classes, and 
the spirit of the school. 

School spirit is the foremost value for me because I 
was the mascot in a spirit-rich program in high school. 
Co-Lin gave me the opportunity to further my mascot 
duties into college because they have an incredibly 
spirited program. 

I absolutely love being the mascot here at Co-Lin. It 
gives me a chance to interact with the fans, children, 
patrons, and the community. We have so many 
activities on and off campus that the cheerleaders and 
I attend. 

Co-Lin is also a place for me to further my education 
and make an easier transition into a four-year college. 
There's no place like home, and there's no place like

Every incoming freshman always has a big 
decision to make once they are accepted into 
Co-Lin: to stay in the dorms or not to stay. 
Many decide based on how far away they live 
from the campus, expenses, friendships, 
extracirricular activities, work, and many other 

Some may just want to experience that sudden 
feeling of independence away from their 
parents. Or others think they actually get more 
accomplished while staying on campus. 

The four different girls dorm on the Co-Lin 
Wesson Campus are: Copiah Hall, Lula Stevens 
Hall, Stevens Annex and Josie G. Ellis Hall 
(honors dorms). As for the boys, Co-Lin 
Wesson Campus also offers fours dorms like 
Elzie Hall, Franklin Hall, and Lincoln and 
Lawrence (honor dorms). 

There are always activities going on for dorm 
residents like intramural sports, Spring Fling, 
various dances, and many other things to 
participate in throughout the year. 

Living in the dorms is one of the best 
experiences at Co-Lin. Students often gain new 
friendships and a taste of independence. Co- 
Lin is definitely the place to be.

trip in China. Through the Baptist Student Union, Kellie and Daniel traveled 
with 175 students from Mississippi and a few students from Boston, 
Massachusetts. The Mississippi Baptist Convention Board was in charge of 
organizing the trip but each student was required to raise funds needed for the 
trip. Not wanting to look suspicious with 175 students going throughout the 
communist China trying to witness to people, the large group split into small 
groups and were sent to different cities of the country. 

Kellie and Daniel say they were blessed to have six other wonderful students in 
their group. The two really enjoyed the "one big happy family" feel they had 
had within their group. The memories they made 
will stay with them for the rest of their lives. 

"If anyone ever asked me if I would 
ever go back, I would tell them "I 
am already halfway there. " 

- Daniel Friis 

"It is really hard to say what my favorite part of China 
was, because I loved it all," exclaims Kellie. 

Kellie and Daniel had the opportunity to worship 
with fellow believers in their house churches, or 
better known as, underground churches. Even though 
they could not understand a word they were saying, 
the pair thought it was such a beautiful sight to see 
the Chinese people giving their all to the Savior. The 
Chinese Christians involved with house churches put 
their lives on the line to worship God and that is a 
beautiful sight in itself. 

They also had the chance to visit with college 
students in an English corner of a bookstore. There 
they tried to communicate with Chinese students. The 
students practiced their English while the missionaries 
tried their hands at speaking Chinese. 

Daniel says that the students loved to watch or play 
basketball. "If they were not playing some kind of 
sport, they were doing some type of school work. Six 
days out of the week they were in school and the 
seventh day was homework day," he explained. 

The two both enjoyed their experience and hope to 
return to China one day. They pray that those who 
may not know Christ, as they or the Chinese do, will 
come to know Jesus.

The Wolfpack had a successful 2009 campaign 
finishing with a 6-3 record, 4-2 in the South 
Division and one win away from the playoffs. 

Co-Lin got off to a slow start falling to eventual 
State Champion East Mississippi 27-13. They 
bounced back in Week 2 defeating Mississippi 
Delta 34-9. Quarterback Percy Turner was named 
an Offensive Top Performer of the Week. Turner 
was l4-of-24 for 144 yards and three touchdowns. 
Return specialist Fred Fuller was selected the 
Special Team Top Performer of the week for his 
80-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. 

In Week 3, the Wolfpack traveled to Jones County 
and lost a heartbreaker 28-24. They returned home 
in Week 4 to defeat rival Southwest 15-3. 
Linebacker Ronney Magee was selected as a Top 
Defensive Performer of the Week for his 4 tackles 
and 45-yard fumble return for a touchdown. 

The Wolfpack hit the road traveling north to the 
Delta to spoil Coahoma's homecoming 16-15. 
Then came the match-up with nationally-ranked 
Mississippi Gulf Coast. The game was webcast live 
nationally on the NJCAA website. Co-Lin jumped 
out to an early lead, but Gulf Coast came back to 
take a 38-14 win. 

In Week 7, Co-Lin celebrated homecoming with a 
45-25 win over the Pearl River Wildcats. Running 
back Tywon Lee rushed 29 times for 161 yards 
and 2 touchdowns earning him Top Offensive 
Performer honors. 

Despite heavy rain, the Wolfpack defeated East 
Central 27-13 sparked by a 86-yard kickoff return 

for a touchdown by Fred

The Wolfpack cheerleaders provide support and inspiration for 
Co-Lin athletic teams, fans and supporters. Many hours of practice 
and conditioning year around go into the preparation for the 

Tryouts are held each April. Former Co-Lin cheerleaders practice 
with the new cheerleaders in February so they can be prepared 
for tryouts. 

Starting in May, the new squad travels to surrounding counties 

conducting private camps to junior high cheerleaders. Each camp 

lasts three to five days. The 

cheerleaders also hold Lil Wolf Cheer 

Camps for elementary-age students 

during the year. Participants cheer 

during home football and basketball 


Co-Lin cheerleaders practice at least 
three to four times a week beginning 
in May. They have attended UCA 
cheer camp at the University of 
Alabama the last eight years winning 
numerous awards and trophies. 

Former Co-Lin cheerleaders have 
gone on to cheer at NCAA Division I 
schools including the University of 
Mississippi, Mississippi State, the 
University of Southern Mississippi, 
Southeastern Louisiana University, and 
Delta State University,

The Wolfpack finished the 2009 
season with a 3-13 record. The men

much improvement for the Wolfpack 
soccer team from the previous year. 
The team continues to improve with 
each game. They worked hard 
during the off season with rigorous 
training and condtioning sessions.

What can be said about the Lady Wolves Soccer 
team? They worked very hard this season. Members 
of the team were dedicated to training and 
conditioning in the off season in order to prepare 
for their tough schedule this year. These ladies 
were in each and every game, putting forth a 
valliant effort each time they stepped onto the 
field. As Thomas Jefferson once stated, "There is no 
substitute for hard work." The Lady Wolves 
certainly worked hard this season.

The 2009-2010 Wolves were looking to make a return trip 
to the MACJC Championship game. But the Wolves only 
returned two sophomores off last year's team, forwards 
Dwayne Brown and Josh Hart. 

Although the freshmen class was full of talent, the youn£ 
and inexperienced team struggled with the rigorous and 
sometimes brutal South Division schedule. The Wolfpack 
finished the season with a 6-17 overall record and were 4- 
8 in the division. 

Highlighting the season was a sweep of nationally-ranked 
Hinds, a 66-65 win at home and a 79-77 win in Utica. The 
Wolves lost six games by six points or less, which could 
have turned the season around. 

The Wolfpack gained valued experience this season as 
they prepare for the 2010-2011 campaign.

Lady Wolves finish regular season 23-0 

By: Natalie Davis 

After finishing mnners-up in last year's MACJC State and 
NJCAA Region 23 Tournaments, the Lady Wolves came into 
the 2009-2010 season on a mission, winning the state and 
regional championship. They are one step closer to their goal 
as they finished the 2009-2010 regular season with a perfect 
23-0 record, 12-0 in the division and a South Division 
Championship. It was the college's third perfect regular 
season in school history, all three under head coach Gwyn 

The Lady return two starters from last year's season including 
NJCAA Honorable Mention All-American Rachel Vigers and 
NJCAA All-Region 23 and First Team MACJC All-Stater Latoria 
Holder. Other experienced returnees include forward Shareka 
Hunt and guards Rokeiya Adams and Nadia Collins. 

This year's freshmen class includes Kristin Newsome, Naketa 
Roberts, Paige Webster, Brandi Simmons, Ashley Morrison,

Stepping up 

to the plate

The Wolfpack look to improve in 2010 after finishing 
last season with an overall record of 19-26 and a 
South Division record of 10-14. 

This year's team will be as young as any team in the 
last 17 years. The key to the success in 2010 will be 
how the young players adjust. The entire pitching 
staff will be made up of players that have little or no 
experience at the college level. 

Returning sophomores include catchers Tyler Hue 
and Ryne Tutor, Second Team All-State 
centerfielder/LHP Jeff DeBlieux, outfielder Kendall 
Logan, infielders Cable McMinn, Luke Brumfield and 
Matthew Freeman. Pitcher Brandon Jones will miss 
the 2010 season due to injury. 

A large group of incoming freshmen include catcher 
Zach Williams, catcher/RHP Daniel Jenkins, first 
baseman/RHP Conner Oakes, shortstop Edmund 
Cheatham, shortstop/second baseman Brett Rushing 
shortstop/third baseman Bud Britt, and third 
baseman/RHP Preston Edwards. 
Freshmen outfielders include Seth Avants, Patrick 
Ferguson, Chris Fink, Tyler Reeves, and Jesse Shows.

New faces on the pitching staff include right hand 
pitchers Jesse Shows, Marshun Hall, Andrew Lee 
(Northwest Rankin), Mitch Tidwell, Drew Weaver, 
and left hand pitcher Ryan Kennedy. Redshirt left 
hand pitcher Ben McDowell will be available for 
duty this season. 

Coach Keith Case returns for his 18th season for the 
Wolfpack. Bryan Nobile returns for his sixth season 
as assistant coach. Justin Brewer joins the coaching 
staff this season as an assistant. Serving as a student 
assistants are Brandon Jones and Steven Capistran.

The Diamond Dolls are an integral part of the Co- 
Lin Baseball Program. These hard working young 
ladies work in various areas of the program. They 
are the friendly faces that will greet you at the gate 
at all Wolfpack home games at Sullivan Field. Home 
games will also find the Diamond Dolls working in 
the concession stand on the third base side of the 
stadium. Away from the field the Diamond Dolls 
serve as hostesses to recruits on campus. They give 
campus tours and entertain them in the dining 
facilities. The Diamond Dolls spend quality time in 
making the Co-Lin Baseball Program successful.

The 2010 season brings another year of high expectations for the 
Lady Wolves. The 2009 squad won the difficult South Division title 
and their third MACJC State Tournament Championship in the last 
four years. Five starters were lost from the 2009 team that finished 
the season ranked No. 9 in the NJCAA National Polls. This marked 
seven straight years that the Lady Wolves were ranked in the 
NJCAA's Top 10. 

Returning sophomores who made key contributions are NJCAA 
Second Team Ail-American center fielder Monea Cameron, NJCAA 
All-Region shortstop Daniele Wilson, MACJC Second Team All- 
State pitcher/second baseman Terri Hodges and MACJC Second 
Team All-State third baseman. Holli Smith. 

Cameron set school records for homeruns (10) and runs scored 
(41). In addition, she led the team in batting average .412 and 
slugging percentage of .748. Wilson lead the team in RBIs with 49, 
while setting school records for doubles (16) and walks (29). 
Wilson carried a hefty .403 batting average, hitting 8 homeruns. 

Sophomores who look to make contributions this year are 
catcher/first baseman Katie Stewart and utility player Dee-Dee 
Walker. These sophomores were instrumental in our success last 
season and look to continue to build on that success in 2010. 

Kent is bringing in a talented group of freshmen. Three freshmen 
out-of-state players highlight the group, pitchers Bethany Pinkston 
and Debra Hamor, and catcher Lakin Lockhart. All three have 
extensive travel ball experience and come from very successful 
high school programs. 

Local area freshmen competing for playing time include 
catcher/utility Haley Sones, utility players Erika Rutland and Casey 
Risher. Rounding out the in-state crop is outfielder Kayla Coleman. 

The sophomores return with a 
sense of confidence having won 
last year's MACJC State 
Tournament, but they are hungry 
for a return trip to the National 
Tournament, The Lady Wolves 
must succeed in division play, in 
the State Tournament and finish in 
the top two in the NJCAA 
Regional/District Tournament.

The Lady Wolves will be young and 
inexperienced in 2010. The team will be 
led by Mary Catherine McDonnieal, the 
lone returning sophomore. 

Coach Holli Pepper will be relying on 
newcomers Katie Beth Case, Nicole 
Magee, Meagan Neal, Heather Huff, and 
Rosa Young. 

"We've have several players that have 
been succesful in doubles at the high 
school ranks," said Pepper. They have 
limited experience in singles, but have 
worked hard in the fall in preparation for 
the spring.

The upcoming 2010 season looks very 
promising with the return of the top four 
sophomores. Anchoring the Wolfpack are 
Columbians Nico Osorio and Guillermo 
Chaves, the Wolfpack's No. 1 and No. 2 
players, along with Reed Rodgers (No. 3) and 
Reilly Miller (No. 4). 

"I want to win an individual state title and 
help my team repeat as State Champs, and 
then qualify for the NJCAA National 
Tournament next spring," said Osorio. 

"I would like to add a singles title and repeat 
as a doubles State Champ, in addition to 
helping my team make that trip to Nationals," 
said Chaves. 

According to Mclntyre, Rogers and Miller made tremendous 
progress as players last spring. Both were doubles players in 
high school, but their singles games came up several levels. 
Unlike high school tennis, collegiate players need both singles 
and doubles skills. 

Joining the 2010 team are sophomores Colby Bass John McLeod, 
freshmen Joey Shelton and Levi Weeks. 

Mclntyre is very optomistic about 2010. "With the top four 
players returning, if the new players work hard, we should be 
able to make another run at a State Championship.

There are many things happeing 
around the campuses of Copiah- 
Lincoln Community College. This 
year, the college experienced a 
record-breaking enrollment of 3,700 
students, which now makes Co-Lin 
larger than Alcorn State University and 
Mississippi Valley State University. 
There was also record-breaking snow 
falls throughout the state. 

Improvements and additions were 

apparent when students arrived on 

the campuses for the new school 

year. There is always something going 

on at Co-Lin, which is what makes it 

"Like No Other."

College breaks ground on new health science building 

By: Mark LaFrancis 

Co-Lin Natchez broke ground for a $4.2 
million 25,500-square-foot health science 
classroom building Oct. 1. outside the 
Tom Reed Academic Center. 

"We're really excited about this new 
facility on the Co-Lin Natchez campus," 
said President Ronnie Nettles, praising 
the Adams County Board of Supervisors. 

The financing was secured in 2007, 
when the Adams County Board of 
Supervisors voted to continue an annual 
allocation to Co-Lin Natchez. Moments 
prior to the ceremony, the Co-Lin Board 
of Trustees approved hiring Clark 
Construction Co. of Brookhaven. 
Additional financing will come from a 
$740,000 federal no-interest loan to Co- 
Lin through the U.S. Department of 
Agriculture to purchase equipment and 
educational materials. That loan was 
arranged through the Southwest 
Mississippi Electric Power Association, 
which provides electricity to Co-Lin 

"For 37 years, the Copiah Lincoln 
Community College Natchez campus has 
provided quality educational 

opportunities and other services to 
Adams County and the surrounding 
area," said Eugene Bates, chairman of 
the Co-Lin Board of Trustees. 

Construction began in late October with 
site preparation. The building could be 
ready by early 2011.

Below a blanket of blue sunny skies, family and 
friends gathered in the courtyard to dedicate the 
Floyd L. "Honey" McCalip Pavilion to the late Floyd 
McCalip of Natchez. In addition, the gathering 
celebrated the pavilion's completion by James 
"Bubba" McKinley of Natchez, who undertook the 
project to earn his Eagle Scout badge. 

"When they told me they were going to dedicate 
the pavilion to my father-in-law I was very 
impressed and thrilled ... the whole family was," 
said Gwen McCalip. "It was very touching to us 
and we appreciate this it was hard work. This 
means so much to the McCalip family." 

McCalip also is director of admissions and records 
at Co-Lin Natchez. 

Floyd McCalip was a long-time Boy Scout 
executive and a frequent visitor to Co-Lin Natchez, 
where he frequently was an active participant in 
the Current Issues Discussion Group sessions 
conducted by History instructor James Wiggins, 
who attended the ceremony.

Landscaping projects on all three campuses 
were completed in 2009. In addition to the 
landscaping, new banners have been 
added on all campuses. The banners were 
designed by staff member Celeste 
Williamson. The Wesson Campus received 
a new iron gate in front of the Ewing 
Administration Building and the Oswalt 

Two new portable classrooms were 
purchased for the Simpson County Center. 
One will house a computer lab and the 
other will be used as a science laboratory.

By: Mark LaFrancis 

The Natchez Campus was chosen by the Natchez 
Adams County Chamber of Commerce as the Large 
Business of the Year. It was the first time the campus 
has been so honored. 

"Not only has Co-Lin Natchez made a difference in the 
lives of individuals throughout our community it is a 
vital part of the employment and economic base of our 
region," said Debbie Hudson, chamber president and 
chief executive officer. "The members of our 
community touched by Co-Lin Natchez are not only 
better educated but are more able to find successful 
careers. They care for their community, and that 
matters to all of us." 

Dr. Ronnie Nettles, Co-Lin president, and Teresa 
Busby, campus vice president, accepted the award, 
which is kept secret until the announcement. 

In an e-mail to staff, Nettles said, "Congratulations to 
Vice President Teresa Busby, instmctors, and staff at 
the Natchez Campus for being recognized as the Large 
Business of the Year by the Natchez-Adams Chamber 
of Commerce at their annual awards banquet last 
night. This award demonstrates that the business 
community of Natchez appreciates the contributions 

and positive impact of Co-Lin Natchez in the 

Nettles added, "I appreciate the hard work of 
everyone at the Natchez Campus for their 
dedication and commitment to our students and the 
Natchez community. It was a good evening for our 
college. I heard many positive comments about Co- 

Busby said, "It is such an honor for us to receive 
the Chamber of Commerce Large Business award 
for 2009. We at Co-Lin have always worked to| 
contribute to our community and to have a positive 
impact on the many lives we touch." 

Busby continued. "It is also special to realize that 
others recognize our contribution to the 
community, not just as an educational institution, 
but an employer and school whose employees and 
students take their roles as community partners 
very seriously. The dozens of staff and students 
who helped make this award possible share in our 


Third annual Copiah-Lincoln Lecture Series 

Mississippi Lt. Governor Phil Bryant 

By: Natalie Davis 

Mississippi Lieutenant Governor Phil Bryant was the fall speaker for the 2009- 
2010 Co-Lin Lecture Series. Bryant spoke on "State and Local Governments" on 
September 14, 2009, in Rea Auditorium on the Wesson Campus. 

The former State Auditor was elected Mississippi's Lt. Governor in November 
2007. Lt. Governor Bryant has a long history of fighting for conservative 
beliefs, like lower taxes. Prior to serving as State Auditor, Bryant served five 
years as a member of the Mississippi House of Representatives where he was 
Vice Chairman of the Insurance Committee and authored the Capital Gains Tax 
Cut Act of 1994. 

Lt. Governor Bryant's persistence in promoting conservative public policy 
stems from his belief that people, not the government, know best how to 
spend their own money. His consistent views and actions in public service 
helped him earn the 2004 Statesman of the Year award presented by the 
American Family Radio.

Tom Noddy, The Bubble Man 

By: Natalie Davis 

The spring speaker was Tom Noddy, the Bubbleman. Noddy performed 
three shows (two shows for over 600 elementary students) on March 1-2, 
at The Thames Center on the Wesson Campus. 

Noddy spent over a decade developing a new kind of performance piece. 
Sitting alone with dime store bubble solution, a childlike sense of wonder 
and an adult sense of humor he brought a new thing into being: Bubble 

After three appearances on America's Tonight Show, Noddy was featured 
on the 'Best of the Year' Tonight Show segment. In his 30-plus year career 
as America's Bubble Guy, he has appeared numerous times on prime 
time, daytime and late night television shows as well as nightclubs and 

Noddy's work has been presented to 900 mathematicians at the 
International Congress of Mathematics in Berlin, Germany. He's been the 

featured performer for science centers' Bubble 
Festivals attracting up to 17,000 people in a 
single weekend. 

He is as comfortable performing for pre- 
schoolers as he is when entertaining audiences 
in theaters, nightclub, corporate parties, trade 
shows, or television programs in over 50 

Noddy has taken his uniquely warm charm and 
intellectual interest in soap bubbles to audiences 
around the world. The bubbles are truly 
exquisite and his lively humor and engaging 
sense of fun leave his audiences both delighted 
and intrigued.

Snow in Mississippi is an unusual 
occurrence, but two significant snow 
falls in one winter is really out of 
the ordinary. 

A rare historic winter storm 
impacted the state late in the 
evening February 12 and the 
morning of February 13 with Central 
and Southern Mississippi receiving 
the brunt of the heavy snow. This 
winter storm would dump 3-6 
inches of snowfall through Central 
and South Mississippi. 

Two to four inches blanketed the 
campuses on Friday, December 4. 
Students, faculty and staff got a day

Squeals of children filled the lobby of the Tom 
Reed Academic Center on the Natchez Campus. 

Santa Claus had arrived and was ready to hear 
children's wishes for Christmas. Mrs. Claus joined 
him at his side as youngsters - some eagerly and 
others a little warily - disclosed their wish lists. 

Laptops, games, bicycles, and other fun items 
topped many lists. In all about 50 children visited 
with Santa during the first Christmas at Co-Lin 
program, an event spearheaded by Vice President 
Teresa Busby and staff as a gift to the community 
this holiday season. Parents were given free 
photos of their children with Santa and even Mrs. 
Claus. Children received balloons and candy 
canes. Cookies, hot chocolate and cider were 

The lobby of the Tom Reed Academic Center was

Science Division hosts DNA Workshop and Robotics Camp 

Co-Lin's Science Division has spent a busy year reaching 
out to the community. The division offered a Robotics and 
Space Exploration Camp for students entering the fifth, 
sixth or seventh grades June 15-19, 2009- 

"We noticed a lack of science camps for this age group and 
felt this would be a good fit for the community," said Dr. 
Kevin McKone, Co-Lin Science Division Chair. "We are very 
excited about hosting this camp." 

Students learned the basics of robotic design and 
programming, build and design a space robot, learn about 
summer constellations and use a robotic telescope. 

The first three days campers met at Smith Hall on Co-Lin's 
Wesson Campus. The last two days they traveled and spent 
the night at French Camp, MS, and viewed the night sky at 
French Camp Academy's Rainwater Observatory and 

Planetarium. The Rainwater Observatory and 
Planetarium is an educational ministry of 
French Camp Academy. The Observatory, 
the largest in the state, has 16 telescopes, a 
planetarium and an extensive astronomy 
library plus other optical instruments. 

The division hosted a DNA Fingerprinting 
and Paternity Testing Workshop for area 
high school instructors on January 20, 2010, 
on the Wesson Campus. 

Kathy McKone from Enterprise High School 
filled in for scheduled guest speaker Dr. 
Mike Yerky of Cornell University. McKone 
has attended Yerky's workshop at Co-Lin 
and at Cornell. 

Workshop participants performed DNA 
fingerprinting and paternity tests which are 
widely used in criminal or legal cases to 
determine identity or parentage. 

Participants have access to a loaner kit that 
includes all the equipment necessary to 
complete these experiments with their 
students in the classroom.

Co-Lin named Military Friendly School 

By: Natalie Davis 

Copiah-Lincoln Community College has been 
named a Military Friendly School as announced 
by G.I. Jobs. Co-Lin was one of four Mississippi 
colleges and universities to receive the 
distinction and the only community college 

The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, 
universities and trade schools, which are doing 
the most to embrace America's veterans as 

"We are very proud of this distinction," said Co- 
Lin President Dr. Ronnie Nettles. "I commend the 
efforts of Tim Lea, our certifying official for 
veteran's affairs and our Office of Admissions for 
their efforts with our veteran students." 

Schools on the list range from state and universities and private colleges to community colleges and trade 
schools. The common bond is their shared priority of recruiting students with military experience. 

The tens of billions of dollars in tuition money, now available with the recent passage of the Post-9/1 1 GI 
Bill, has intensified an already strong desire by colleges to court veterans into their classrooms. 

Schools on the Military Friendly Schools list also offer additional benefits to student veterans such as on- 
campus veterans programs, credit services, military spouse program and more. 

The list was compiled through exhaustive research starting last May during the G.I. Jobs polled more than 
7,000 schools nationwide. Methodology, criteria and weighting for the list were developed with the 
assistance of an Academic Advisory Committee (AAC) consisting of educators and administrators from 
Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Toledo, Duquesne University, Coastline Community College 
and Lincoln Technical Institute. 

Criteria for making the Military Friendly Schools list included efforts to recruit and retain military and 
veteran students, results in recruiting military and veteran students and academic accreditations.

Co-Lin was the perfect start to my college career. I have 
had many opportunities and memorable experiences 
while attending Co-Lin. L was fortunate enough to 
work on the Trillium Staff for the past two years. This 
year's staff has dedicated much of their time and effort 
into creating this hook for students and faculty alike to 
enjoy. Working with each and every person on staff to 
make this book a success has been a wonderful 
experience. Even in the midst of deadlines crunches, 
our staff maintained composure and got the job done. 
Good job guys! We did it! Mrs. Natalie Davis has made 
a large contribution to this book. Without her, things 
certainly would not have gone over so smoothly. 
Thanks Mrs. Natalie! L hope everyone is able to have 
the experiences L have had while attending Co-Lin. Lt is 
"Like No Other. " 
-Amanda Burke, Co-Editor 

/ am so honored to have been apart of this team. They 
have all worked so hard and dedicated so much time 
to this edition of the trillium. I would like to say thanks

photos, rather a book filled with memories. I would like 
to say a special thanks to my co-editor, Amanda 
Burke. Thanks for all your hard work and your time. Lt 
would not have been possible without you. I also would 
like to say a HUGE thanks to our sponsor, Mrs. Natalie

- Natalie Davis, Advisor 

The last two years Co-Lin has become my second 
home and family. Time spent here has been an 
enjoyable experience. L have made new life long 
friends. Co-Lin offers a vast of opportunities from

Spring Fling week. L have had the honor to serve on 
several clubs and organizations while attending 
school here. The memories of Co Lin will last a life 
time. Thank you to the faculty and staff for the 
foundation that has been laid. Co-Lin in my opinion 
has the best faculty. To future students L will say

From I £c(ito/tg 

"Like No Other" has been the theme of the 2009-2010 
Trillium. This theme has also been evident throughout 
the year. From all the events and activities going on 
around the campuses of Co-Lin, it certainly has been 
a year "Like No Other." 

The Trillium staff wanted to make this yearbook 
different from past annuals. We worked very hard to 
ensure this book was something worth reading. 

So many things have happened this year and the 
Trillium staff wanted to capture every moment. 

We are very appreciative of you picking up a copy of 
the 2009-2010 Co-Lin Trillium. The staff hopes that 
years from now, you will be able to pick it up, look 
through it, and remember all the memories made at 
Copiah-Lincoln Community College this year. 

Some thanks are in order for making this edition of 
the Trillium possible. First of all, the staff wants to 
thank Dr. Ronnie Nettles for all of his support. The 
staff also owes a huge thank you to Mrs. Natalie 
Davis, our advisor. She really worked hard to make 
sure we were doing our job so the Trillium would be 
"Like No Other." 

Thanks again and we hope you have enjoyed the year 
and reading the Trillium!

From the 1 937 Trillium: 

Eight years have passed by since the students of Copiah-Lincoln published 
their last volume of The Co-Lin. Since then much water has gone under the 
bridge. Many changes have been wrought in our college. We have ridden 
triumphantly out the the depression, preserved our traditions, and achieved 
some of our ambitions. We have grown steadily stronger in the things that 
make a college great. Academic achievements, dreamed of in 1929 have 
become ours; athletic honors, cleanly won on fair fields of competition have 
brought us fame; character education has continued to be a noble influence in 
our classrooms. 

Now, to celebrate the glories of our greater college and to better preserve its 
hallowed traditions, we are publishing, after a lapse of eight years another 
annual, which we christen The Co-Lin Trillium in honor of our beloved Alma 
Mater and a wild spring flower, native to the fields and woods of Copiah and 
Lincoln Counties. 

Trillium: a plant with a solitary three-petaled flower above a whorl of three 
leaves, native to North America and Asia. Genus Trillium, family Liliaceae (or 
Trilliaceae): several species, in particular red (or purple) trillium (T. erectum). 

ORIGIN modern Latin, apparently an alteration of Swedish trilling 'triplet."
